Elgin, Illinois

This is for all you RVers out there. We've been staying at the Burnridge Forrest Preserve (Paul Wolff Campground) here in Elgin, Illinois. Elgin is about 40 miles from downtown Chicago. This is one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. All sites and roads are paved and well spaced. For example, there is 60 feet on one side and 150 feet on the other side of us to the adjoining sites. We have 50 amp and water. There are two dump sites as you leave the Preserve.

Look at all the space around us.

And then there are the miles and miles of walking and biking trails. We've taken a couple of bike rides around the park and traveled about 4 miles while still in the Preserve.

And, the weather has been in the 70s the whole time.

Love this park!

One of the main reasons we wanted to hit Chicago was to see my really close girl friend of 42 years. And today we did just that. We drove into Chicago and met her near her condo. She provided a great lunch and then we walked across Shoreline Drive to Lake Michigan just a few blocks from her condo.

Isn't this cute? Even dogs get their own water fountain.

Apparently this statute was just added to the park 
area and there was no description with it. 

Tomorrow will be one of those loooong travel days, again. We hope to cover 330 miles and end up in Ohio near Lake Erie by late afternoon.

Have a great week, everyone!
